Focus on Athlete: Hauke Stockrahm

As previously announced, the 2013 Genghis Khan Festival will introduce a new competition that will crown the King and Queen of the Grasslands. The honorary title will go to the athlete who completes the 200km of mountainbiking and 42km of marathon running in the fastest time. Shanghai-based German Hauke Stockrahm is one of two men, the other being China's Ji Xinli, who acccomplished this remarkable feat already last year. And he's coming back!
